Mark Strong Confirmed as Sinestro? Geoff Johns Thinks So.

Twitter. What can’t it do? One thing it can do, and very well, is give an instant tool for Hollywood people to blurt out things that they may not necessarily have the go-ahead to blurt out. Which is good for us, and sometimes not so much for them. Consider comics writer Geoff Johns, who recently took a trip down to the New Orleans set of “Green Lantern” and came away twitting this:

Back from an amazing trip to Green Lantern town a.k.a. New Orleans!! Ryan IS Hal. And Mark Strong is going to be a brilliant Sinestro.

“Green Lantern” director Martin Campbell has already previously expressed his desire to have Strong (last seen terrorizing Sherlock Holmes in “Sherlock Holmes”) play Sinestro in his big-budget movie, where he would be terrorizing Ryan Reynold’s Green Lantern. That apparently has now come to pass.

Mark Strong is Sinestro. A much, much better choice than fanboy crush Jackie Earle Haley, in my opinion.
